In November 2005 some of the finest musicians and artists in the world assembled at the Manchester Opera House to re-create - in full - 'Demon Days', the award-winning album by the animated phenomenon Gorillaz.
Spanning five nights, this was the very first live rendition of the record, as sanctioned by 2D, Murdoc, Russel and Noodle themselves.
This unique event featured guest appearances from Neneh Cherry, Bootie Brown, De La Soul, Ike Turner, Shaun Ryder, Roots Manuva, Martina Topley Bird and pre-recorded contributions from MF Doom, Dennis Hopper and Ibrahim Ferrer.
The entire performance was set to a backdrop of specially designed visuals and animation by Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett.
Accompanied by an orchestra, a children's choir and the Manchester Community Gospel choir, the results were breathtaking, an exceptional collaboration of music, film and animation that surpassed all expectations.
